M&S Ludgate Circus

The store run by SSP Group will stock a broad selection of all-day food and drink products.

The first ever airside M&S Food to Go store is set to open at Birmingham Airport in early 2019.

The store, which will be run by SSP Group, will stock a broad selection of all-day food and drink products such as freshly-made baguettes, wraps, sushi, salads, confectionery, smoothies, beers and wines. Hot food available will include hot sandwiches, soups and bacon rolls, as well as M&S coffee and other hot drinks made by trained M&S baristas.

“We’re excited to be opening in Birmingham Airport early next year. This is a great opportunity to continue to grow in travel locations where we know customers love the convenience of our offer,” said M&S retail, operations and property director Sacha Berendji. “From sushi to salads, our Food to Go store will have a tailored range of quality products for customers to enjoy before they board or on their flight.”

SSP Group CEO Kate Swann explained that it has “worked closely with the development team at M&S to create an offering that will appeal to people flying through Birmingham Airport looking for quick, delicious meals and snacks to eat in or to take with them on their flights. We hope this will be the first of many more to come.”
